Toxic Masculinity with a Side of Space Whales

September 24, 2019

*Content Warning: brief discussion of date rape.* Two fan-favorite characters are displaying signs of toxic masculinity: Lt Cdr Geordi La Forge and Neelix. Ryan and Becca shine a light on these characters' upsetting behaviors, and how they reflect real-life situations, especially in the workplace. Also featuring large space-dwelling creatures that are somehow never called space whales. We look at The Next Generation episode “Galaxy's Child” (S4:E16) and Voyager episode “Elogium” (S2:E4).
